I don't know how others do it...

I'm friends with some other authors & even in a few reader groups for them. I hear their stories, and I swear everyone is juggling so much in life and pumping out books every 2 months, on average (or so it seems).  I'm lucky if I can get 1-2 out a year.

I will admit I'm a busy bee myself.  I have an almost 3-year old and a 1 year, and they take up a lot of my time.  My hubby leaves earlier then me and gets home later, so I'm the one getting them ready in the mornings & picking them up from daycare.  I work 8-5, and then when we get home, I feed them & play with them until it's time for bed.  Thankfully, the hubby cooks!!! YAY!!!!  But, I do the cleaning, and dishes, and laundry...etc. Basically, I do the chores.  Not to say the hubby doesn't try to help, but realistically, it's faster if I just do it (because I'm a bit of a control freak and I have specific ways of doing things) than if I show him how.  Sometimes, though, I'm too tired to care & however he does it, he does it. lol.  By the time I'm done with all this, I'm ready for bed.  I write nowadays when I have a few minutes to spare.

And yet, I know I'm not the only one with so many responsibilities.  So...I don't know how others do it.  But, I'm 100% envious.  And also, more power to them!  But for now...I've got one completed story that will be coming out soon - details to come as soon as I have them.  And I'm working on another.  Fingers crossed for me!

Okay, rant over...carry on ;) hehe

Sound Off!

I feel like I'm talking to myself over here...

Is there anyone out there listening (or rather, reading) my rambling posts?

If you are, Happy Passover to those celebrating this week!  And Happy Belated Easter!  (Better a day late than never! lol)

That's all I got for you this week ;)

Happy Monday!

(I totally LOL'd when I saw this pic)

Did you know....

That I have a very cool reader group.  It's small, but that sort of on purpose.

If you follow me at all, you'll realize that I ramble on and on about what's going on in my life, but I don't share "details" - i.e. I don't post pics, I don't talk about specifics (like my kid's names - Emmie & Elon FYI - matching E names not on purpose lol), etc.

But I do all those things in my reader group, which is also why it's small - I feel like I can trust the people in it with my life.  (Yes, I'm very superstitious.)  If you think you're trustworthy and/or you want to join my group, look up DC's Diamonds on Facebook.

I also talk books, do giveaways, sneak peaks, ask for feedback, etc.

So come join!  (Let me know if you need/want the link.)
